Last chance to get those leaves taken away.

BURLINGTON, ON.  If there are leaves left on your property – you`ve  got one more chance before you begin thinking about getting the Christmas tree up.

This crew will probably not be clearing the leaves from your property. They were working along New Street when this picture was taken.

The city has a leaf pick on December 2nd and another on December 9th – and that`s it for this year.

The map set out below tells you where the pickups are taking place.

The city has some rules:

Please follow the guidelines below to help ensure a timely and cost-effective leaf collection program:

  • Please have your loose leaves raked and ready for pickup just prior to the start date for your collection area.
  • Be mindful of collection dates and avoid raking leaves to the road too early.
  • Place leaves up to the edge of the curb or roadway (but not on the road) in a loose pile so city equipment can reach them.
  • Ensure loose leaves are not over catch basins or in the ditches in front of your home .
  • Please make sure leaves do not contain branches or other debris.  Leaves mixed with other waste cannot be collected.
  • Avoid placing leaves on sidewalks and walkways.
  • Remove basketball nets, parked vehicles and other obstructions from the road to allow city crews clear access to leaf piles.
  • Do not place garbage bags, garbage bins, Blue Boxes or GreenCarts on top of loose-leaf piles
